Must see · Castle · Tourist Spot
Located right in the town's center, the medieval Haapsalu Castle boasts the biggest single-nave church in the Baltics and the tallest structure in town. As you walk through the dark hallways of this convent, you'll see medieval chambers with preserved objects and wooden adornments that bring a strange balance to the monument. Climb the 38 m (125 ft) tall bell tower to enjoy views of the surrounding area. The site is also famed for the reported sightings of the White Lady--the ghost of a maiden who was captured and starved to death in the castle.

  • Historical landmark in Haapsalu, little museum and sight over city, you can walk some hallways and climb up to tower to enjoy the view. Also very nice church inside of castle, in castle yard there are many events during summer, concerts and shows, ticket to museum was 12 EUR as adult in summer of 2019
  • Beautiful old castle. Excellent museum! Overview of the history of the castle and Haapsalu, in parts interactive. Great views from the viewing platform. Worthwhile. (even though a little bit expensive, but see it as a support of locals and if valueing history)
